This necklace celebrates simplicity. By using just the crochet chain stitch, you can craft a piece that’s both delicate and versatile. The choice of yarn and hook size can dramatically change the look: a larger hook creates a more airy and bold necklace, while a finer hook offers a daintier appearance. The design allows you to make the necklace as long or as short as you desire, giving you the freedom to wrap it around your neck multiple times for a layered effect.
Supplies: Yarn, crochet hook, scissors.
Crochet chain stitch
The crochet chain stitch is the bedrock of almost all crochet projects. It’s the first stitch most beginners learn and serves as the foundation row for many patterns. Simple in its execution, the chain stitch offers versatility in various projects, from simple jewelry to complex garments.
Steps for crochet chain stitch
Slip Knot: Create a loop with your yarn and insert your hook.
Tighten to form a slip knot.
Position: Hold the hook in your dominant hand and maintain yarn tension with the other.
Yarn Over (YO): Catch the yarn with your hook.
Pull Through: Draw the yarn through the loop on your hook to form one chain stitch.
Repeat: Continue the YO and pull through the process for more chains.
Count: Count the V-shapes to determine chain stitches (excluding the loop on the hook).
Finish: Cut yarn, leaving a tail, and pull through the last loop to secure.
